Most of the buttons and controls on the TouchSquid App will be familiar, but there are a few which you may not have encountered before. These are labeled above.
The mode bar is where you select the current activity. The icons displayed will vary with the profile chosen. In this case we have Watch TV, Play DVD, Play Music, Play Music, and Watch Bluray.
Choosing an Activity on powers for all devices used in that activity, and changes the inputs as appropriate.
Turns of power for all your devices.
Mutes the sound on the audio device. Touch again to restore sound.
The "Squid Eye" is where you touch when something is not right. It gives you access to a troubleshooting screen to correct issues like one device failed to power on, or the TV has no picture.
When you touch Guide or Menu most cable/sat boxes will bring up an on screen menu for channel choices. This button makes the menu disappear.
We noticed that although it is seldom used, most remotes waste a lot of space with a full keyboard. We decided to hide it. If you want to enter a channel number manually, touch here.
Regardless of mode, these arrows will control the sound volume on the device specified in setup.
In Watch TV mode this will change channels in increments of one. In Play DVD mode it will change chapters.
This toolbar will disappear if not needed, or will change to be appropriate for the activity.
Note: On some devices, some buttons might not be active if the device lacks that function. This is a limitation of the device being controlled, not the app.
